Good insight. But we could have gotten more information from Brabs if the questions weren't framed to get him to answer in a particular ways.

For example the interviewer assumes he prefers to run in the FIA WEC rather than the ALMS or the LMS.

If anyone didn't know, most top notch endurance drivers (those who get paid to race) would prefer the ALMS, it offers more media coverage than the WEC and LMS. Given that Brabs doesn't have to work to earn a living, he can race where he wants to race. And he had mainly chosen the ALMS. He did the FIA GT last year because highcroft abruptly ended their program, and he still wanted to race in a strong program that still needed drivers.

If the ALMS had a bigger profile and was more attractive it would have more than three cars in the top class and a handful in LMP2.
